the guys almost 40, he knows he'll never be champ. probably just fighting to keep the cheques coming in, so doesnt have the passion

I put a bet on Gaethje, the odds were too tempting (3.85) but he is such a violent and spectacular fighter that I think he has a chance, also listened to his plan which is to stay away from the cage, he points out that Khabib has needed the cage to finish everyone, super fun fight whatever happens

Just checked and BT Sport want £20 to watch it PPV, fuck em I'll wait for it to hit the pirate bay, think they missed a chance tbh at £10 a lot of people may have bit and they would of made more money.

Good shout especially with khabib’s weigh in today, strange to see somebody so weak and then 36 hours later look so scary

On reading what you wrote I went on youtube to watch the weigh in, fuck me Khabib looks on the edge of feignting the whole time, like really in bad shape, I know Joe Rogan constantly bangs on about how bad for fighters health it is to cut so much weight quickly but Ive never noticed it so dramatically, however they'll both be 173-177 later on today when they meet.

Sorry to bang on but had a Twitter/google search and so many respected fighters and commentators are saying he didn’t make weight due to the speed of the weigh in, makes sense for Dana to fudge it as the PPV money is obviously the highest of 2020

How can Dana fudge it? Surely it's the commission that do the weigh in not ufc

Saying that does fight island have a commission?

Yeah I reckon the UFC have got power to put in some words defo. Also, Khabib and Justin are both managed by Ali so he'd probably smooth it over too.

Does anybody have a stream?

Yeah he was class, I would have liked to have seen him compete at welterweight but fare play if its time its time.

Gutted he's walking away. Totally understand why though. Amazing fighter and love his humility. The GOAT.
